The look of the beer is a Rusty Red.
The carbonation is light.
The smell is all about that sweet roasted malt. Very nice
And the taste is a corny sweetness. At the end of the taste you have that metallic caramel. As a red ale its nice feeling
So overall would I recommend it ? Yes, definitely one of my favorite Rickard's yet. But it is not one of the best Red Ale on the market.

Serving Type: 16 oz. Draught poured into a nice Rickards glass.

A- Pours a nice ruby colour topped by a white 1 1/2 finger head. Head dissipates fairly quickly and leaves a thin film. Lots of lacing on the glass.

S- Sweet, lightly roasted malt. Not much in the way of hops as the brewery description states.

T- Lightly roasted malt, lots of caramel sweetness, and a mild hop finish.

M- Light-Medium carbonation and a fairly thin body.

O- Rickards Red. One of the best brews in the Rickards line but definitely not one of the best Red Lagers out there. If you're looking for a tasty brew that is good with a steak and available at most restaurants (in Canada at least), Rickards Red can do the job. If you have a choice, definitely choose draught over bottle (the bottles have a weird metallic taste). Overall, I recommend this beer.
